Hi. A long time ago I setup 1Password to sync using Dropbox between my Macs, iPhone and iPad. I noticed some discrepancies in the data on my Mac and iPhone recently, and realized that at some point, somehow, 1Password on the Macs stopped syncing using Dropbox. "Sync Primary vault with" is set to None in Preferences.
Now I don't know which devices have the correct data.
Right now, 1Password is syncing – from iOS I presume – into a folder I created inside the Dropbox folder. It contains the "1Password.agilekeychain" file. When I tried to enable syncing 1Password on the Mac using Dropbox, I'm asked to choose the Dropbox folder. After choosing the Dropbox folder, the file path shows "/Users//Dropbox/Apps/1Password/1Password.opvault". I don't have this file at this path, so I'm assuming 1Password from iOS is currently syncing into the 1Password.agilekeychain file. A message on the drop down sheet appears saying that "1Password will create a copy of your vault in Dropbox. It should become available on other devices in a few minutes". I cancelled out of this sheet.
I don't understand what will happen to the old 1Password.agilekeychain file. Which data will overwrite which data? I am hesitant to turn on syncing on the Mac so as not to overwrite updates I entered on the Mac with old data from iOS or vice-versa.
– What is the correct method to have the existing data from my Macs and iPhone/iPad merged?
– Will the divergent items be merged automatically into 1 item or will there be 2 copies?
